Eglinton East Light Rail Transit (EELRT) Project


The City of Toronto, together with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), is planning the Eglinton East Light Rail Transit (EELRT) project, a rapid transit line proposed to span across eastern Scarborough. The project consists of:

  • An LRT operating within the centre of the roadway on a dedicated guideway, separated from vehicle traffic
  • A route extending 18.6 km from Kennedy Station to Malvern Town Centre via the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC), with a connection to the future Line 2 terminus at Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road
  • 27 stops along the route, including five interchanges with other major transit lines
  • Extensive public realm improvements along the route informed by the City’s Complete Streets Guidelines, including protected bikeways, wider sidewalks, multi-use paths and greenery
  • A maintenance and storage facility (MSF) at Conlins Road and Sheppard Avenue East for the LRT vehicles and an estimated 15 traction power substations (TPSS) along the route
